Edition EKTAlux was established with the desire to bridge the gap between high end art world and overexposed mass market artwork.

The gallery was founded in 2015 by curator Julia Spiess, with the purpose of promoting the work of contemporary photo artists, with an emphasis on German photographers. 

Edition EKTAlux offers an evolving curated selection of collectable art photography in strictly limited editions, while working closely with each artist to guarantee state-of-the-art museum level print and framing quality.

Majoring in art history at Cologne University in the early 90s, Julia witnessed the rise of German art photography synonymous with members of the Düsseldorf School of Photography [Candida Höfer, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff among others].

Looking back at 20 years working in photography, Julia developed a keen eye for bold visuals and striking images - igniting a lifetime passion for contemporary European photography.
